hi there,

I have ~300 buffer polygons (see attached) and want to randomly select ~50 of them. when one polygon is selected, I want to omit all other polygons that overlap that selected polygon from the next step of selection.

I want to do this stepwise for all 50 polygons I select. in the end, none of my 50 selected polygons will overlap.

any ideas? I am new to python.
